Drew Peterson Faces Arraignment Today for Murder of Third Wife Kathleen Savio


Drew Peterson was arrested on May 7, 2009 for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Today, he is scheduled to be formally arraigned on first degree murder charges in the 2004 slaying of Kathleen Savio. Defense attorney Joel Brodsky is expected to try and lower his clients $20 million bond.


Maybe Drew did some reading over the weekend and will act accordingly today in court?

Peterson is accused of drowning Savio, who was found dead in a dry bathtub in 2004 with a gash on the back of her head. Her death originally was ruled an accident, but after Stacy Peterson went missing, Savio’s body was exhumed and authorities ruled it a homicide staged to look like an accident.

Wonder what antics we can expect from Drew Peterson today? His last trip to court was quite the media spectacle as the attention seeking Peterson made jokes regarding his shackles and prison provided attire Drew Peterson and his attorney use the excuse when it comes to his behavior, “how am I supposed to act, it’s not like there is a book for this.” Actually Drew, there is … you can read it here.


As expected in court this morning, Drew Peterson pleads not guilty to murdering his 4th wife.

Prosecutors filed a motion at the hearing asking for a new judge. State’s Attorney James Glascow didn’t give a reason, and court recessed while another judge was called to handle rest of the hearing.


Prosecutors asks for change of judge; hearing set for Thursday

Shortly after Peterson’s case was called before the Will County judge Monday morning, prosecutors asked for a change of judge, which was followed by an immediate call for recess. The matter was set for a hearing on Thursday.

      Can you describe what a total jerk this guy has been since the disappearance of his 4th wife. I believe this man is a good example of being a failure his whole life at everything he did. One day, they will find those barrels…

      No telling how many people he killed, imo.

      I hope this guy spends the rest of his life behind bars and being a cop will not be pleasant for him on the inside.

      I can’t stand to look at this guy. I don’t know how he managed to dupe women into falling for him.

      I agree with #3—you are sooo right, Michelle.

      What could any of these women have possibly seen in him? Unattractive, big bags under his eyes, goofy and a Wolf in Sheep’s clothing!

      He pleaded NOT GUILTY at his arraignment today, what a tool.
